" I believe no AWD will be offered like the E63 models but the new C63 sure sounds and looks very fast.


The prices of the current C63 cars have been very stable over the years, I wonder if this new model comes out it will drive the old gen prices down. A clean C63 in the low to mid 30K US range would be a heck of a deal.

I'm just hoping to surprise people. I know I def wont win em all...but hopefully some. "

" What's going on everybody?
I have a question regarding different methanol mixtures. I'm currently stationed in Germany and it's damn near impossible to order anything, unless you own a business, liquid based that comes from sates side i.e Boost Juice, M1 race fuel, etc. and my main supplier, for methanol, packed up and left. Now my only source for methanol is Xtreme Blue wind shield wiper fluid, which is only about a ~30/70 meth to water ratio. My question is, what other sources could I use to raise the methanol levels? As of now, the only thing I know that can increase the level is Heet 28201 Gas-Line Antifreeze and Water Remover, but the down fall to that is that it's a seasonal item, in which I just bought the last 3 bottles, so I wont be seeing that again no time soon. Are there any other alternatives that I could use? Just to add before anyone says anything about e85, the closes station is 45 minutes away. "

Sure maybe for the classes/trophy runs. But for most of the guys who get on here and talk trap speeds you are not talking apples and apples. Most go from a roll not from a dig. I wasnt directly talking about the Trophy classes but the overall drivers comparing trap speeds. "

You think I need your praise? Please, I could care less. The car's capability isn't conditional on anyone's delusions. Would have been nice to smack the S54's around for a second time... oh well next time.

I believe the S54 has won every single BMW event at Shift-S3ctor that they've participated in except for the event your car showed and they all had ECU issues. Kenton took home 1st at AA3 and then you took home first in AA4 and then Marcus/Kenton took home 1st and 2nd in AA5.

Kenton's best trap at AA3 was 178, Marcus trapped 181 at AA5, have you ever trapped higher than 178? Unless I'm mistaken your trap was like 172 or 173 at AA4? So trap speeds they've got you beat, w/o question. Roll racing is another story as we saw with Marcus vs Drew. "

" Wait, JRcart SLS lost to Drew's M3. Sticky didn't you have a bet with JRcart? Maybe he now has better appreciation of built M3's, theoretically yours will be much quicker too. "
